Artist in Residence at Glen Foerd on the Delaware

This Deadline Expired: Friday, April 28, 2017

Artists are invited to apply to become an Artist in Residence at Glen Foerd on the Delaware. Once selected the Artist in Residence may choose any six month period between June 2017 and June 2018 to complete their residency. This opportunity offers area artists unprecedented access to Glen Foerd’s historic collections, impressive grounds and the Delaware River. This is an amazing opportunity for artists across mediums and especially targeted to artists that have an interest in historic collections, architecture, environmental art, public engagement, Philadelphia history, historic homes and riverways. Glen Foerd’s Artist in Residence Program is an opportunity for artists to pursue their artistic discipline and engage with the public while interacting with historic and natural elements of the estate. Outcomes are open-ended, but must include the creation of site specific outdoor artwork, interventions, performances or installations to be exhibited in Fall 2018 and a public engagement component. Examples of public engagement include the following: educational outreach programs, online engagement, workshops, artist talks or performances. Artists will have access to and are encouraged to engage with Glen Foerd’s community partners, a process that will be facilitated by Glen Foerd’s staff. Each selected artist will receive a $600 stipend.
